Big Cigar Astronomy is an association of two amateur astronomers that really love to observe the heavens and have a passion to take photographs of what we see so we can share it with others.
Located on the border of Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, our observatory has decent, dark skies. On good transparent moonless nights, The Summer Milkyway stretches across most of the sky. The Great Andromeda Galaxy can be seen with the naked eye. Other Messier objects such as open clusters are also naked eye objects.
We invite all who visit to explore our site. Check back with us often as we tend to update this web site quite regularly.
